The Lifelong Learning Platform is delighted to announce that it will be holding its 2020 General Assembly on 25 September. The GA will be held in an online format due to the restrictions on meetings and travels, and will see the participation of the whole membership.
Members will gather to discuss the general direction of the LLLP, and will also proceed to the election of four new Steering Committee members. The rotation system has it that three members of the Steering Committee will end their mandate this year, and two more resigned in the last year; the General Assembly will thus be tasked with electing these new representatives, a stated in our statutes and internal rules. Members of the LLLPlatform are currently presenting their applications, with a deadline on 4 September.
The General Assembly will also elect a new President for LLLP, as Luis Costa’s mandate is coming to an end. As our statutes and internal rules state, the new President shall be elected between the Steering Committee members whose mandate has been lasting for at least one year.
During the General Assembly members will be discussing the next cycle of the Erasmus+ programme as well as the LLLP positions on Lifelong Learning for Sustainable Societies and the role of education in active citizenship. The E&T post-2020 policy developments will be part of the discussions too. Two Working Groups will also take place.
The General Assembly will also be an occasion to vote on and welcome new members in the LLLP family. The LLLPlatform also invites interested organisations to come forward and apply as members of the Platform. If you are interested to become a member of the LLLP and would like to learn more about the procedures and added value, find more info here. Deadline for applications is 25 August 2019.
Please get in touch with the LLLPlatform for any other matter.
